Happy California Arts Day from Berkeley Rep!

This year’s California Arts Day theme is “driving creativity.” 

We know what the theme intends: creative cars driving speedily down the highway of artistic enlightenment. 

But driving isn’t always easy and, these days, it doesn’t always have the most positive connotations.  The word alone ignites thoughts of high gas prices, traffic, and parking frustrations.

It’s the same with the arts. Funding is tight and schools are pushing out art requirements in an effort to meet standards.  We all know the spiel. 

So for California Arts Day, let’s focus on those who are keeping us driving -- inventing the “hybrid cars” of the arts. 

Thank your teachers, politicians, and local artists who keep driving creativity in California even when that parking space seems pretty impossible to find. 

We certainly do!  Thanks California for continuing to “drive creativity!”  

Join our California Arts Day Facebook/Twitter* campaign by posting the following phrase:

“FILL IN THE BLANK drives me in the arts! Repost this status with what drives you to celebrate California’s Arts Day!”

*If you’re tweeting, be sure to use #BerkRepArtsDay as your hashtag.  



Very insightful! Thanks so much for helping to spread the word about California Arts Day. We hope your Arts Day rocked.
